Fifty Firm Attorneys Recognized as Leading Lawyers


Fifty Heyl Royster attorneys are listed in the recently released annual compilation of "Leading Lawyers," which is published by Leading Lawyers NetworkSM. Heyl Royster continues to have more Leading Lawyers than any other Illinois firm based outside of Chicago. Overall, more than 65% of the firm's partners are Leading Lawyers, which is a distinction that is reserved for less than 5% of the attorneys licensed to practice in the state.

In 2014, seven additional Heyl Royster attorneys were selected as Leading Lawyers in Illinois in their respective areas of practice:

  • Robert Bennett – Medical Malpractice Defense Law, Professional Malpractice Defense: Incl. Legal/Technical/Financial
  • Philip Eisele – Toxic Torts Defense Law
  • Beth Jensen – School Law
  • Theresa Powell – Employment Law: Management, Medical Malpractice Defense Law; Professional Malpractice Defense: Incl. Legal/Technical/Financial
  • Scott Salemi – Medical Malpractice Defense Law; Personal Injury Defense Law: General
  • Tobin Taylor – Toxic Torts Defense Law
  • Charles Timmerwilke – Personal Injury Defense Law: General; Products Liability Defense Law

Leading Lawyers NetworkSM is a division of Law Bulletin Publishing Company. The Leading Lawyers list is the result of surveys of thousands of lawyers in a given state asking which of their peers they believe comprise the top lawyers in their practice area. Only those lawyers who are most often recommended qualify as Leading Lawyers.
